Pain Management Philosophy
At Holy Name Medical Center, our Health Care Team focuses on providing compassionate and evidence-based care for both acute and chronic pain. We take all pain seriously and understand that unrelieved pain can lead to negative physical, psychological, social and spiritual outcomes. Therefore:
We are committed to managing and reducing pain while being sensitive to cultural, spiritual and personal beliefs related to pain and pain relief measures;
We promote patient and family involvement in all aspects of pain management;
We believe that pain should be managed only as medically necessary, and in such cases conservatively and under the close monitoring of physicians and the entire health care team using an approach based on scientific evidence;
We strongly encourage non-drug methods as part of the pain management plan, including distraction, relaxation and a variety of comfort therapies.
When medications are appropriate, treatments may include both non-opioid and opioid medications. At times, opioid therapy is an effective option; but because the potential for known side effects and risk of developing tolerance and addiction, not all patients with acute or chronic pain are candidates for opioid therapy.
We recommend patients with chronic pain issues treated outside of the Holy Name network maintain their relationship with their prescribing provider and keep them informed of any new medical or surgical issues.
The Health Care Team at Holy Name Medical Center will always strive to find safe and effective options to reduce pain, minimize the potential for side effects, and improve our patients’ quality of life.
